Use a 5-Step Process to Transform Your Business--and Your Life! If you've ever yearned for a business that would energize rather than drain you, if you've ever known and admired someone who made financial services look easy and fun, then you're ready to learn a new way to market. A way that doesn't require so much of your time and energy. A way that requires less effort. Effort-Less Marketing is based on author Steve Moeller's extensive research and refinement of the best strategies to build a financial advisory practice, as well as key marketing principles that work just as well for financial advisors as they do for such customer-savvy giants as Saturn and Nike. You'll toss aside conventional, exhausting sales techniques for a newer, easier way. With these 5 steps, you'll take the guesswork out of reaching the wealthiest and most enjoyable clients, make referral-gathering a no-brainer, and completely revitalize your business.

STEP 2: TARGET PROFITABLE MARKET NICHES Pretend for a moment that you're a prospector looking for gold. You could try your luck panning in the nearest riverbed. Or you might try to improve your odds by prospecting in a riverbed where others have discovered gold. But most rivers have been panned for more than 150 years. All the "easy" gold has already been found. You would be lucky to get even a modest monetary return for your efforts. A more sophisticated prospector would focus on discovering the source of gold. Once the veins of solid gold were located, gold nuggets could be mined efficiently all day long. Meanwhile, the other prospectors would be down in the riverbed panning for flakes. Discovering your source--rich niches--is what Step 2 is all about. Packed with valuable research data, chapters 4, 5, 6, and 7 illustrate the power of niche marketing. Starting with a look at the big picture--the universe of everyone who could conceivably be a prospect--you'll learn how market segmentation can help you identify the specific community of individuals who will benefit most from your services. Because these individuals are in the same niche, by definition they have similar hopes, concerns, and needs. So keeping them happy is simple. By focusing on a single niche--or even a couple of niches--you'll quickly become an expert at identifying, attracting, and helping people in that group. Focusing and narrowing the scope of your business this way will help you master the effort-less marketing process. SECTION PREVIEW Take advantage of the five benefits of targeting. Identify the top 20 market segments for financial advisors. Apply the 80/20 rule to your current clients. Uncover the two to three niches that you'll make the most money in and have the most fun with. Profile your ideal client. Use the Ideal Prospect Profile to find high payoff prospects.
